La Nina / Drought Update

The gu rains in Somali Region are now reported to be withdrawing in areas including Afder, Gode, Korahe, Liben and Warder zones. The belated arrival of the gu/ganna rains in May temporarily relieved the severe water shortages experienced between February and April in many pastoral and agro-pastoral areas, improving water availability and browse regeneration and reducing the need for water trucking except in pocket areas of Somali, Oromia, Afar and Amhara. However, the overall performance of the rains this year was below normal, with water sources only partially recharged and pasture not fully replenished in most pastoral areas of Somali, Oromia and SNNP regions. Meanwhile, the National Meteorological Agency (NMA) has confirmed that sea surface temperatures have returned to near normal in the central Pacific, but that La Nina atmospheric conditions persist, with rainfall forecasts confirming the return of dry weather conditions in the southern rangelands of Somali and eastern Afar in the coming weeks. At the same time, above-normal rains are expected in the northern highlands. The NMA has, therefore, issued river and flash flood warnings for different parts of the country. For highland areas, the NMA also issued guidance to agriculture extension workers to support small-holder farmers? access to seed in the event of a need to replant due to flooding, and to pesticides to control wheat rust and ensure good weed control for good yields.

Volcanic Eruption in Border Area

A series of moderate earthquakes of an average magnitude of 5.6 occurred around the Ethiopia-Eritrea border area on 12 June, provoking volcanic eruptions in the Nabro area, southeastern Danakil province (Eritrea). No major damage has been reported from the earthquakes, however, the volcanic eruptions released a thick ash plume that rose as high as 13.5 km, covering the skies in parts of Afar and Tigray regions. Partners report that Afdera, Bidu, Erebti and Teru woredas of Afar have been affected by ash clouds. The Afar Regional Disaster Prevention and Food Security Bureau has deployed a team to assess the situation and identify immediate needs. Among the priority concerns are potential contamination of water sources and possible impact on human and animal health. Essential items such as masks and water purification materials are in the Regional Health Bureau?s stores. With support from the Geology Department of Addis Ababa University, further analysis of the situation is ongoing.
